Key Benefits of ODA Software

Membership in the ODA enables CAD companies to share the cost of developing code, a measurable business advantage. “We integrate the ODA Platform with our own development environment so that we maintain our individuality and can continue to create plug-ins for third-party CAD applications.”

Bob explains that TurboCAD is most often compared to Autodesk® AutoCAD®. “We try to take advantage of this comparison by actually extending .dwg compatibility beyond AutoCAD’s capability, with support of intelligent architectural object types such as walls, windows and doors, something that only more expensive products like AutoCAD Architecture support.”
